Cool The World Stage Is Set As The Yamaha U.S. Road Racing Teams

The World Stage Is Set As The Yamaha U.S. Road Racing Teams Share The Spotlight With MotoGP At Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix

Cypress, CA July 25, 2012 – As the world’s best and brightest motorcycle road racers descend on the 2.238-mile, 11-turn Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for this weekend’s Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, the Yamaha U.S. Road Racing Teams will be there, as well, to show the world that its American riders don’t take a back seat to anyone when it comes to exciting racing and compelling personalities.


To say that two-time reigning AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Champion Josh Hayes is on a roll this season would actually be an understatement. Aboard his #1 Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R1, Josh has won every pole position so far this season--seven in a row, in fact--and he’s also amassed 10 wins so far, with seven more races to go.

Last year at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Josh won the pole and led the most laps in the race, but he came up just short to Tommy Hayden at the checkered flag. Josh will be looking to avenge that result and, on the world stage, notch his first career SuperBike win at Laguna Seca.

Josh Hayes’ toughest competitor of late has been his own teammate, Josh Herrin, who rides the #2 Monster Energy/Graves/Yamaha R1. Josh has gotten a few holeshots off the starting line and, at Mid-Ohio, he got a feel for what it’s like to lead a SuperBike race. Josh has been on the podium eight times already in this, his rookie SuperBike season. He won a SuperSport race at Laguna Seca aboard a Yamaha R6 back in 2007, so he’s already tasted victory at the Home of the Corkscrew.


Cameron Beaubier is another Yamaha rider who is on a roll of late. After his breakthrough weekend at Barber Motorsports Park where he notched his first career AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike pole position and two race wins, the 19-year-old got another win aboard his #6 Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha YZF-R6 at Mid-Ohio. Cameron has won three of the last four DSB races, and is looking to make it 4 for 5 with a win at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Cameron is from nearby Roseville, CA, and he’ll have lots of family and friends in attendance to cheer him on.

Veteran rider Tommy Hayden, who is Cameron’s Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha teammate, will be racing his trademark #22 R6 on a track where he’s had a lot of success. Tommy won last year’s SuperBike race at Laguna Seca, and he also won two SuperSport races back in 1999 when he raced the very first version of the Yamaha R6. 13 years later, and Tommy returns to Laguna Seca R6-mounted once again!

The third member of the Y.E.S./Graves/Yamaha team, Garrett Gerloff, will also be in attendance at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca where he’ll be available to greet fans, sign posters, and provide his continued support of the team. Garrett is inching ever closer to making his return to AMA Pro Racing competition after fully recovering from his injury at Daytona.


On Friday at 11:35 AM, don’t miss the special on-track parade laps where you’ll see the Yamaha U.S, Road Racers circulate the track in a special photo opportunity. On Saturday at 1:00 PM at the Yamaha team transporters in the AMA Pro Racing paddock, both Josh’s, Cameron, Tommy, and Garrett will all be on hand for an autograph session. And then, at 3:00 PM on Saturday in the Yamaha Marketplace, there’ll be another autograph session featuring Cameron, Tommy, Garrett, and the Yamaha Extended Service Umbrella Girls.

On Saturday night at 6:00 PM, Yamaha and GE Capital welcome Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP riders Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies, Monster Tech 3 Yamaha MotoGP riders Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso, along with Yamaha U.S. Road Racers Josh Hayes, Josh Herrin, Cameron Beaubier, Tommy Hayden, and Garrett Gerloff to the stage for a fan celebration. Josh Hayes will be giving away free T-shirts commemorating his 2011 SuperBike Championship.

If you missed any of the other autograph sessions, you’ll have one more chance on Sunday at 12:45 PM as both Josh’s and Garrett, along with the Monster Energy Umbrella Girls, will be on hand in the Yamaha Marketplace to greet fans and sign posters.
